ArangoDB is an open-source, highly scalable Graph Database with Multi-Model capabilities. In addition to graph it is natively supporting a number of data-models including Document, and Key-Value as well as Full-Text Search and Retrieval. It serves as the scalable backbone for Graph-Analytics and complex data architectures across many different industries. Developers can build high-performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript extensions. Oh, and did we mention it is open source?

ArangoDB itself is written in C++, but a large part of the surrounding ecosystem (e.g., driver, benchmarks, and adapters to various Data or ML platforms) is python based. Furthermore, the ArangoDB community has a large number of open source projects. Hence we are looking for an experienced Python Developer to support these projects and community.

Our headquarter is in San Francisco (US), our development hub is in Cologne (Germany) and our diverse team includes workmates at remote locations worldwide. So do you prefer your desk at home or do you want to join our modern family at one of our locations? Your choice.
